Steinberg Society

The Steinberg Society was established to recognize donors who have ensured the future financial stability of the PSO by designating the Orchestra a beneficiary in their estate plans and have advised the Development Office that they have done so. Named for beloved conductor, William Steinberg, the organization honors members who have made deferred gifts through wills, charitable trusts, life insurance, retirement accounts and other deferred gifts.

Maestro Steinberg's portrait in the Grand Lobby marks the site of the honor roll where members names are inscribed, recording their commitment in perpetuity. Unless directed otherwise by a donor, the PSO adds estate gifts to its permanent endowment where the principal remains untouched and a percentage of the earnings support the annual fund each year.

We hope that if you decide to leave a gift to the Pittsburgh Symphony through your will or trust that you will let us know. Steinberg Society members are invited to an intimate brunch in the Mozart Room annually for a private musical performance.   

For more information, please contact Myra Toomey, Gift Planning Officer, at (412)392-3320 or mtoomey@pittsburghsymphony.org.

The PSO strongly advises you to consult your personal financial and legal advisor(s) for information specific to your circumstances. We would also be happy to meet with you and your advisor to help structure a gift that meets your philanthropic objectives.
